Revered French violinist Augustin Dumay will be the featured soloist with The Dallas Opera Orchestra under the direction of Dallas Opera Music Director Emmanuel Villaume in a performance of Erich Wolfgang Korngold's Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 35. The concerto will be paired with Korngold’s very first opera, The Ring of Polykrates, a one-act domestic comedy composed in 1913 when he was just 16 years old. The work premiered in 1916 on a double bill in Munich.

The plot revolves around a musician, Wilhelm Arndt, whose career is on an upswing, along with his finances. His happiness, he tells his wife, Laura, would be complete if only he could see his long-lost friend Peter Vogel again. But you’re aware of the old saying, right? “Be careful what you wish for!”
